Something a little different

This is what 52CCT challenged us with this week and while I was deciding
which stamps to use I unearthed a whole box full that
had been hidden away in the cupboard.
I had completely forgotten the floral stamp and when I saw it again I knew just
what to put with it to make an Aussie Christmas card.
Didn't want to embellish it too much so left it plain just
some stickles around his hat and perfect pearls in the gum flower centres.
I also found my stamp positioner that I had put in a safe place
and not laid eyes on for months so it made stamping the greeting
so much easier

Am entering this in:
52CCT - Triple stamping.
Make it Monday - Anything goes Linky party.
Creative creations challenges - Keep it simple.
CHNC 2 - Anything goes.

Thanks for dropping by you are most welcome.
